Sounds to me that you already convinced yourself. Go cancel your pre order and go buy a yokomo, then find out that its fragile and and search all of Asia for parts. Period!

If you must depend only on those big race results to decide....

Then why provoke readers of this forum thread?

Or better yet, go buy that associated which you keep hyping about and find out its sloppy and won't hold it's settings throughout a six minute run. Your choice.

I disagree. Paul was given the car in Vegas. From what I heard he was assembling it on Monday. No matter how good a driver he is he has to have time to figure it out. The T4 has major changes and old setups may be a starting point but better setups will be refined over time.

In August at the offroad super nats Tebo raced the new RB6. Joe Pillars and Tebo worked and worked on setup and throughout the race they got faster. In the end Tebo didn't win. Does that mean the RB6 sucks? No. It means it was a brand new car and they started figuring it out. Each race it will get better and better as setups are refined.

I have mine preordered and I cannot wait.

And to all of you that are taking BS about the car..... have you driven the car yet?..... no you haven't so don't talk about something you can't know anything about.....

Anf for all you Yokomo fans.... what about all the diffrent rear arms
Funny that, I was actually going to scrap the recommended setup they give you and start with something similar I had with the '12. It took me about 6 months to get to where I got (away from the stupidly soft setup they recommend that allows way too much roll).

I 100% believe this car will be quicker than the t3, simply due to less weight transfer and better cog.

There are some serious trolls on this thread!

I raced against a T4 with my T3'12 yesterday (due to not having had time to build my T4).
And I can tell you those T4s are seriously fast.
The T4 driver was one main below me in a race 2 weeks before (back then driving a T3 as well).
And with the T4 he was on pace with me except for him making 1 or 2 minor driving mistakes per run that i didn't make
I think the T4 is way superior to the T3'12.
Really stoked to build my T4 now

They live in Europe.

All I can say is, I hope they loaded the kits onto one of those drug running speed boats to deliver to the U.S.! Getting anxious!

Ordered mine last week in Germany and is delivered today. Looks like the bigger shops in Europe have the car in stock.

Yea a TC6 that Keven has been driving for over a year now versus a T4 that was built last week. Seems a very fair comparison.

Buy one or dont. Your comparisons your trying to make are based to stupid assumptions.
